We’ve been in the fortunate position to see a lot of online businesses go from moderate success to massive success in less than a year.
In fact, most of our new clients see their businesses grow after the first 12 months of working with us, so we’ve come to expect some sort of growth for all our clients each year, even if it’s just a little bit.
The one thing that is not guaranteed with a growing business is profit. There are a lot of expenses that come into running an online business that you might not be thinking of, which is why it’s so important to get a clear and accurate picture of your cashflow.

Why profit is so important for online businesses
Why it’s very rare online businesses can be profitable simply by accident
What it takes to make sure your business is staying profitable as it grows
